Italy and France are the big draws on Day 9 of the World Cup.

Italy have the chance to build on their win over England when they play Costa Rica, who surprised Uruguay, in Recife in the day's early game.

In Group E, Switzerland and France, who both won their opening games, meet in Salvador.

Then Ecuador and Honduras will go in search of their first points of the tournament when they line up in Curitiba for the late game.

Here's a list of five players—and one coach—who will hope to play a key role on the ninth day of the World Cup. Feel free to use the comments section to agree, disagree and add your own.
